Years ago people found many edible plants and seeds that grow in adverse conditions, and which form part of their diet. In several other countries these grasses and plants are mowed down and destroyed as weeds. One of them is Samo Rice which has different names in India like Variche Tandul, Bhagar and Kodri. Samo rice is quite delicious which is specially made for fasting. Even though you do not go for fasting just try it for a change instead of rice.
